Richmond Obeng is a filmmaker moved by thought-provoking authentic narrative. Starting his filmmaking journey directing commercials, music videos and branded content, Richmond quickly embarked on his own inspired path, focusing on creating stories grounded in truth and representation. These efforts include the award-winning and internationally praised anti-suicide short “Helping Hands”. Continuing on his mission to bring important stories to light, Richmond’s long-form debut came with his 2018 documentary “Some Sort of Judas”. The film looks at violence in the inner-city and its ripple effects on a grieving community through the narrative of Kevin Williams, a once promising rap artist who became the crown witness in a quadruple murder case against his own friend. Currently he is focused on adapting the story of Leslie Wagner-Wilson, one of the few survivors of the Jonestown massacre. The docuseries version of this story screened at American Black Film Festival in 2021, and received a nomination for ‘Outstanding Digital Series” at Micheaux Film Festival.
